MEMPHIANS: Seriously, as one of you, let me just say that you NEED to go downtown and check out what we have more often. Beale Street is NOT just a "tourist trap." It's an absolutely perfect concentration of everything that Memphis music is and has ever been. Yes, it's there to make the city money and to attract tourists, but everything that is down there is our home-grown stuff. And if you haven't availed yourself of the opportunity to drink the local musical-brew recently, you are seriously missing out.
